Livebait (Covent Garden)

This is my second visit to Livebait, and it's my friend's birthday.

The experience, and the treatmeant we got from the management was appauling. Firstly, they couldn't find our booking for 5 ppl, and only when they asked if we made the booking online, then they realised they didn't take the booking properly. Lastly, we brought a cake for our friend, and asked if we can cut the cake in the restaurant. This time, the manager came to our table, and said there is a policy to charge 3 pound per head, because not all of us ordered 2 courses.

I understand it's a normal practise to charge customers for having birthday cake in a restaurant, but he surely sounded like we have to pay because we didnt order enough food.

We expressed our comments, again no apologies from management at all.

It absolutely ruined our night.

Ok, it's a review, the bread and salmon pate was nice, grilled sea bass was ok, there are definitely nicer seafood restaurants in London and I will not recommend it to my friends
